    Good mornin to you all.
    My name's Mick.
    I've just started duromine today.

    My story is I had a bad motorcycle accident that left me unable to walk for 4 months. And as a result I gained about 15kgs which has put me to 127. Before the accident I used to go running with my mates every Friday and box every Monday and Tuesday. But they have moved on so I'm not doing any of that anymore. Which made me quote sad and gained a bit from too.

    So i went to the doctor yesterday. Did all the stuff. And starting today. They told me my calorie intake should be 2800 to lose 0.5kg a week. But I still think that's too much. So from what I heard this stuff really does work.

    Anyway. Glad there is a support group. Hope to make some friends here and have a success story like all you wonderful people.

    Hello and welcome to our 'Duromineland' Mick!

    I am sure you will get your desired weight loss, since you've told you did some sports. Duromine therapy requires exercises and diet, which I know won't be hard for such a person like you ;)
    As for the calorie intake, yes you may have less, still you're a man, meaning your body needs at least 1800-2000 per day.
    Good luck and feel free to ask for advice.
    Kate.

    Thanks Kate.
    I can't wait to start feeling better about myself. It's been a long time coming.
    I've got a few metal parts in me now so it's a bit hard to do some types of excercise. I'll have to find what works best for me.

    Hi Mick

    I started on Monday so just 5 days ahead if you!! The last 5 days have been so weird and wonderful... A little light headed and little harder to fall asleep (day 1 and 2) but since then just a huge thirst for water and absolutely no cravings!! :) Amazing!! I had put on weight from a back injury followed by kids, so I know how fustrating it can be to watch the weight creep on when you can't exercise properly!!! I do more weights then cardio now and that seems to suit my body better!!! Good luck with your first week!! I look forward to hearing how you go with your weight loss!! We can get through this month together as newbies! :)

    It's day 3 and I haven't checked my weight. But my busted leg is retaining water for some reason.
    I don't feel myself. I'm not nauseous or anything.
    Is this normal for the start ?
    Did anyone have bad or annoying side effects in the first week ?
    I'm thinkin I may need to drop to 15mg

    I started on the 15mg and just gone up to the 30. I was getting some headaches and just feeling 'yuk' and my doctor told me that I had to drink lots and lots of water. And because I wasn't hungry I wasn't eating as I was just busy and didn't stop. so I have to make sure I eat, even if its something small. I have been dieting for years and this is the only thing that has worked and im so happy my doctor put me on it. Good luck :)

    I feel normal now, been on it a while though. I drink about 2-3 L a day, more if I have my gym class on. Sometimes I wake up at night and feel a bit odd but doesn't happen often

    The spaced out feeling has gone for me now, and I'm at day 7 tomorrow. I think when you get thirsty or if you go too long without food it intensifies that weird spaced out feeling... So yeah, little nibbles and lots of water. It's weird about the water retention in your leg because I feel it works more as a diuretic on my body, it removes fluid. Maybe go down to 15mg you can always go back up later once you adjust to it a little more!? Hopefully your feeling better (more normal) when you wake up tomorrow, it took the whole first week for my body to adjust. :) good luck

    So an update is, yesterday was pretty good. only thing wrong was I had to stop work every 2 hours to fill my drink bottle.
    Day 5 today and I feel good.
    Looking forward to my first weigh in to see if it's working.

    When to the Dr last Thursday. 0.5kgs down. Which isn't too bad I guess.
    Do another weight in this Thursday.
    Side effects have gone.
    Got my appetite back.
    So it'll be a slow process but worth it.

    Well done Micksta!
    Any weight loss is good when you start. Just focus on yourself and don't look at others' results.
    Glad that your side effects have gone.
    I wish you more weight to lose by the end of the next week!
